Fifty book reviews behind, egads, how did it get this bad?! I blame December, I slacked off quite a bit, and I suffered three family deaths back to back, so it’s reasonably understandable why I suddenly really didn’t feel like reading much of anything. I hope to get all these posted within the months of Jan./Feb./Mar., and get rid of all the arcs on my Netgalley lists ASAP, because they’ve been lingering for ages. The shame! The horror!

Upcoming Guest Posts:

The Quiet You Carry Author Guest Post Discusses Her Book
The Bold Mom Drops in and Discusses Halloween Reads for Valentine’s Day

*trying to get more guest authors/bloggers to drop in, if interested comment below!

Aside from that, it’s been productive. I’m working on writing my own books and I have plenty of other projects going on at the same time as well, such as many short stories, learning graphic design, and enduring the upcoming cold weather that’s about to hit the house again. I hope to do more updates like this daily, and keep track of all the ARCs and books that I’m reading. If you like it, let me know in the comments please!

Until next time,

A Few Updates

I’ve finally gotten time to update my Anticipated Reads page! While it doesn’t contain every book that’s on my wishlist, it does contain several new things, so go check it out!

I’m also reading these books at the moment:

 

So reviews for these will come up soon as well. I’ve also been working on getting an agent for my novel, but so far no such luck.

How’s everyone else’s week going? Let me know in the comments!

Until next time,

Pass Me That Book.

Wow, 100 followers?!

100-followersWow, 100 followers!

I have NEVER achieved that high of a number before! I’m dancing around in circles!!!

Thank you, everyone, for following me, and supporting my blog! I am deeply humbled and honored that you would all follow me!

Stick around, because there’s plenty more changes coming onto my blog, such as:

*New Releases Gallery

*More Anticipated Reads Added onto my Anticipated Reads Page

*I’m going to try to fix my Pinterest Board so it shows images, rather than just a boring link

*Several more things

Again, thank you! You have no idea how much this means to me!

Fixed for Now

Okay, I think I’ve got my blog set until I can spend hours at a time to fix things again for the next few days. I’m going to make a list of things that I want to add/fix/change. I’ve got a vague idea of what else to do, such as add badges to places (Netgalley, Goodreads, Public Library, etc.).

I really thank everyone for all their input, suggestions, and ideas. It’s really helped me out. I hope the font is much more readable compared to the dark snow I had from before, now it’s just twinkling stars background. Which is fitting, as I read a lot at night.

In the meantime, that’s me signing off for a while until the next book update which should be in a day or so.

Thanks for sticking through all the changes!

 

Poll Time!

I need some help. I need to know if you all like my new background, header, and font. I’m still changing things around; figuring out how to add badges and so forth by watching YouTube videos, but in the meantime-what do y’all think of the new look? (If your from the south ‘y’all’ is too a word!’!

So:

=do I keep the background/header and all as is?

=should I change it so that it’s more readable?

=anything else?

I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on the matter!

Thank you!
